Good Evening Respected Managers and my dear Colleagues and Friends!
I never thought this moment would arrive in my life when I would stand amidst you all and prepare to deliver my farewell speech. It feels great to see you all here. During my tenure in this company, I have witnessed how loaded you people stay with your work, thank you so much for taking out time for me.
Though it’s been 15 years since my association with this company, it seems my joining in this company was a yesterday affair. And today I am standing in front of you all to deliver my farewell speech. However, there is a big difference between then and now, i.e., the time I joined in here and today when I am leaving. Needless to say, I am bidding goodbye to this company after having gained a wealth of knowledge, which I will treasure forever.
Needless to say, I learned various skills being associated with this organization. I was not very good at time-management and decision-making abilities, but having associated with the company and the projects I was assigned, I became confident and a good decision-maker. I manage my time well and have always met my deliverables on time. I am certain that these skills would help me in my future endeavors too. I’ve also learned to take and give feedback with open-mindedness, to respect other’s opinions and to value other ideas too.
I am thankful to the company for giving me multiple opportunities and work exposure to hone my skills and gain expertise in my domain. In fact, I went beyond my IT department and interacted with people working in other areas, such as Research and Development, Marketing, Analytics, Finance, etc. Getting to work in this prestigious company has been a remarkable learning experience and I am thankful from the bottom of my heart to all my team members and other colleagues for always being on the cooperative front. Whatever I have achieved so far wouldn’t have been possible without the support of my respected manager, Mr./Mrs. ….(Name) and my team members. It feels as if being here every single day with you all makes my day fulfilling and helps me in becoming a well-rounded individual.
My friends and colleagues, I will surely miss the moments which I have spent with all of you. The fun during lunchtime, birthday celebrations, and small get-togethers are some of the best moments which I will never forget. Being part of a team has taught me skills that I can use in more than just the professional area of my life. I am really glad that I met all of you and trust me I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every moment I have spent in this company, the time spent here will be one of the most memorable ones in my life. I would definitely miss being a part of it. You people will continue to occupy a special part of my life.
It is really hard to say “goodbye”, but the time has come to say so. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the support I received here in this company and to let you all know that I have truly rejoiced the friendly and encouraging atmosphere in which I have worked here. Thanks to the board of directors, my boss and all the other people of this company. Thank you for this farewell party and I look forward to hearing about your future successes.
It is finally the time to hug each other and say goodbye. This goodbye is not forever, it just marks a brief pause in our daily meetings and lunches together. We are going to stay connected always. Many birthday treats and promotion parties are to be accompanied together, no matter my company will be different now but still our happy and sad moments are to witness our friendship in future endeavors as well. It has been a pleasure working with you all. Memories will be cherished by me always. Our coffee time chats and those deep target planning. Everything to cherish forever. We will stay connected no matter where we are.
I take with me fond memories, valuable skills, and I hope to one day leave an impression on others similar to the one you have left on me.
Thank you, everyone, for being here. Thank you! Miss you all! Stay connected. Thank you once again for this wonderful party and wish you all the very best for the future!
